Based on an analysis of the micro-organisation of the human cornea, an anisotropic, finite deformation material model of the structured stromal tissue, able to account for the mechanical behavior of the cornea, has been recently developed, Fotia e Pandolfi, [2004], Fotia, et al. [2004]. This micro-mechanical model is thought to play a novel role not only in understanding and evaluating the effects of surgical procedure, as well as to support planning of implant placements, but also in developing newer modalities to achieve predictable results in pathological cases. In view of its use in pre-operative surgical planning procedures, this material model is employed here to numerically evaluate the variation of configuration and stress due to the various procedure of corneal refractive surgery.
